Adidas discounts Germany’s World Cup kit on US site after group stage knock out

It’s only available for 48 hours

It wasn’t a dream, it actually did happen. Yesterday reigning champions Germany were knocked out of the World Cup at the group stage for the first time since 1938.

And with half of the 32 teams making their way home by the end of the day, Adidas has decided to offer a discount on the exiting team’s official team merchandise – meaning that you save yourself some money on Germany’s lush kits if can find a way to get it shipped across from America.

Using the discount code GMNY30, you can get 30% off Germany’s official home and away jerseys, shorts, scarves, balls and training gear on

The fallout from Germany’s exit has been pretty hilarious, for neutrals at least, although it has been stoking some of the worst Brexit tendencies in the British media.  Despite their mediocrity across the board, there was one particular player in the German squad who has been singled out for his poor displays, Mesut Ozil.

In the aftermath of the Mexico defeat, Ozil was dropped against Sweden, before being reinstated in what was an insipid and uninspired performance against South Korea.

His manager has not been one of those to criticise him, however, and has even jumped to his defence, saying that criticism of him alone is harsh, considering how poorly the entire team played. Either way, the squad’s on the plane home today.
